  1. Past hour
  2. Yes. There is a reason why usually retired Olympic medalists/former Olympic medalists light the cauldrons and not active athletes who hasn't got any results so far at Olympics. Athletes like Cathy Freeman are the rarest exceptions. Women tennis is very unpredictable, Naomi doesn't seem to be in good form in the past months, she WD from RG, didn't even compete at Wimbledon so yeah. But this is happens when they want to appeal to Western (particularly USA) sponsors. And Russia wins Artistic Gymnastics ladies team event too, after they won in men. Hats off to them! USA is 2nd, G
  3. 2400 likes 51,000 views so far....
  4. I forgot, you can listen to the guys, mostly Joon, talk on the radio before the performance here https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000ynh2 UK National Gallery's shoutout to Namjoon
  5. Bit rough around the edges. I think he needs to pay more attention to some of the basics like leg and arm extension and so on. He has great lines in the Ina Bauer but some of his positions in spins and spirals and stuff look really unfinished. Also, looks like he bulked up since last year and that it's causing him some challenges on the ice. Still though, lots of promise there.
  6. Agree. When you think about it, they're saying that a skater who looks beautiful and elegant as he does a triple axel, isn't athletic. Let that sink in. That's like saying a a mountain goat isn't athletic because it has a cute shaggy coat.
  7. Again? That's us Fanyus all right...very plot...much evil.... *eye roll* Anyway, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and accept that he's sincere in wanting to apologize. But please, let's not repeat this, N*than...learn the lesson, choose your words more carefully in future. And try to evolve a bit.
  8. nice, Yuma finally found a sponsor https://news.yahoo.co.jp/articles/fa8f2f6f294648a0c87bacb77a01f2c9853908c1
  9. I still have so much to catch up on, how do I ever find the time?!! You can do a virtual tour of the online team Korea House here. So cool!
  10. Simone Biles withdrew from the Team Final... News is that it is not injury related, but mental health issues. I wonder why *shifty eyes at NBC* Cringe. This is why it's better to have retired, or even just former, medalists to do the torch bearing.
  11. the translation of Jin's cutesy 'jwa-hope' into 'Sin-hope'. My favorite so far has been the one where Suga says his heart is full of pride but Weverse makes it into 'the breasts become magnificent' .....
  12. Oh, I'm looking forward to that! The first BTS Village episode was so much fun...I'm sure we'll be rolling with laughter at Joseon Dynasty BTS
  13. My all time favorite is Weverse translating Jin calling J-hope into sin. We have plenty of screencaps of all sorts of sins that Jin has confessed to thus far lmao.
  14. The performances are on YT. The Dyna outfit are *chefs kiss* I also like the PTD outfits a lot. They all look more and more beautiful everyday. This is a special tribute with a special surprise. I love their harmonies, absolutely beautiful.
  15. Weverse auto-translate function is so bad it could be a drinking game
  16. Today
  17. Exactly. The core of the problem is that many people in charge in this sport share exactly his attitude and way of thinking. They openly push this agenda ever since, both in the judging and the media narratives. To paint himself as a victim is downright tasteless, especially after all the blatant favoritism and candies he gets. The pinnacle of audacity is to push for more "masculine" and acrobatic skating, while scoring a WR with Rocketman. Of all possible music choices. My condolences to Elton John and the message he wanted to convey with that piece. It takes more than a video apo
  18. I always believe that skating reflects skaters' personalities somehow. Yuzu's skating is honest and sincere down to the tiniest details. When he skates, he gives everything. There's no hiding 'cos it's all out there on the ice. You fake something and most people can tell something is not quite genuine about. So what you put into skating has to come from the heart. You skate like you mean it. If your heart is not in, it will show in your performance. I don't get Nathan's skating because I don't really feel what he's expressing it (if he's trying to express, that is). I enjoy Donovan's skating e
  19. He.... doesn't actually say "I'm sorry" once. Acknowledging an "ignorant answer" is a first step but doesn't come even close to addressing the underlying issue. I doubt they'll change their "let's make skating straight again" PR strategy when it worked so well with judges so far. (Because there's a lot to unpack in how the media has pushed the "athleticism" angle in that regard)
  20. This photo sequence is an excellent prompt for some (respectful) creative fanfic right here. Oh the evolution You can never truly escape Taechwita lmao
  21. This morning, Momiji and Funa, Gold medalist and Bronze medalist of Skateboarding were on morning show. They were asked what they were talking during the game, and they said they were talking about "Rascal". Rascal is very very old anime and Funa listened to its song during her performances.
  22. Uncle Jinnie!!!! Omg, such good news!! This week started off so so well!! The suit was custom-made, as expected, same place that made his Wooshik show's one. I adore the colors, the accents, materials, the big bow, and mostly the man that took the suit to another level. As you can see I'm totally in love with this suit. And I think it was a deliberate choice that he chose purple https://www.instagram.com/p/CR0oHM6FEnT/?utm_medium=copy_link Ps: I love his sense of style! Very in line with my own aesthetics. I'd totally buy/wear many of the outfits that he had, g
  23. Thank you, that's shorter than I had imagined, I think I counted other competitions as well such as World Championships because every time I watch them, they won I remember Japan was stronger before, the current team is also not bad though.
  24. RunBTS! is back next week!!! And it looks like a lot of fun!!!
